I've been staying here for many years when I take in the Des Moines Operas at Simpson College in Indianola. This is very convenient to the campus and town in general. Reasonably priced. I usually stay 3 nights. Very convenient to Des Moines also.

The motel was very clean, nice location, an excellent breakfast. Good parking. Employee's were very friendly and helpful. Room had good beds and the bathroom had an outside sink and vanity. We like that so one can use the bathroom while the other can use the sink and mirror. In room coffee.

Was put up here for business - can't say we had any problems. Hotel room was clean, everything worked properly, and was a typical "budget" type of lodging facility. Breakfast was typical to these sort of places - nothing fancy, but enough to make your morning start off (had waffle iron and biscuits w/gravy). We were on the first floor,...

Always great to stay at the Apple Tree. Owners and staff always accommodating. Priced right. Clean rooms. Great breakfast. Plenty of parking and close to everything. Just a short drive from Des Moines. We stay here every year for 10 days and always look forward to our stay!

We were just looking for good night's sleep before a long day of driving, plus a decent breakfast. Well, the beds were good. There was no one on duty for about 1/2 hour when I was trying to get additional pillows and towels. Breakfast was pretty bad - coffee was meh, the biscuits were in a cellophane box so they...

I have stayed here in the last half of 2015 3 times and all three experiences have been about the same. The front desk help haven't been overly friendly but have never been rude to me. There seems to be a more casual feel around the employees rather than professional. I have stayed in their Queen Suite rooms when I...

Older property and I thought they had expensive room rates for the ammenties, but the price was inline with hotels in Des Monies area. It wasn't filthy but could use a serious deep cleaning. The bed sheets, towels and bath rooms were very clean. The staff was friendly and did go out of their way to help. Overall a good...

After staying in what I was told the better hotel I had quite a few issues with my allergies, probably due to the strong smell of mildew. I find it embarrassing that a town with a nice college is unable to get a good hotel in town. As much as I hate to have to leave town when I visit...

What I really like about this hotel is the personalized services that you get from Mr. and Mrs. Patel and staff. My wife, family and I just left there today and each time that we go we are impressed with the attention to service. We had an appliance malfunction in our room two nights ago. Patel personally brought a larger...

I made the reservation on line. I asked for a lower floor room due to the knee injure. I have a very large brace, when we arrived they said they did not have one and they don't read anything from online reservations. The worst part was they did not even care, take it or leave it. We got to our...
